    To Traditional Philanthropists who can help please heed Paul's words to the Corinthians: "Our heart is wide open to you. In us there is no lack of room for you, but in your heart there is no room for us. Now as having a recompense in like kind - I speak as to my children - be you also open wide to us" (2 Cor 6: 11-13). We reach out to you at this time in prayerfully asking for your help. Please open your hearts to us!

      We Implore You..."be you also open wide to us"

My very dear brothers and sisters in Christ,

    Christ's Heart bleeds because of our sins against Him, Who is Perfect Love, and because we do not show our love for Him in so many countless ways. Dear people, The Daily Catholic is a gift from God through the use of our talents to help you on your journey home in these catastrophic times for Holy Mother Church.

    When a natural or man-made disaster strikes our nation or another part of the world, it seems that philanthropists pop up all over the place…and I pray that their giving is pleasing before the Lord. In dire times of need God brings them forth to help the less fortunate.

    Without your financial support, The Daily Catholic will become just another victim of the indifference that abounds today, especially when it comes to our One True Faith. Are we hording this True Faith for ourselves, or do we wish to become great saints in sharing and seeking conversions every day, bringing countless souls to Heaven?

    So, from our hearts to yours, which bleed with Christ’s Heart because we seek only His Will, we wonder where have all the disciples gone. They seem to have fled at the slightest sign of persecution. As my husband Mike would say, "Traditional Catholicism is a lonely road, but the ONLY road to follow!" It is God's Holy Will for us to continue this ministry, and how much good The Daily Catholic is doing in bringing souls back to the True Faith only God knows for sure. But one thing is sure and that is that there are Traditional Roman Catholic Philanthropists out there who can help. I ask you in all humility to please stand up and be counted. Help us, please, so we may continue. Our books are an open record and there have been no profits. That I can guarantee you. We have basically gone bankrupt in keeping The Daily Catholic going for both Mike and I are permanently disabled and unable to work outside the home. Mike has dedicated every waking hour practically to The Daily Catholic so consumed is he with wanting to save souls and to snap lukewarm souls out of their lethargy. We’ve been working solely for the Lord since 1990. Without Him we wouldn’t have made it this far. Likewise without your previous support we wouldn't have been able to expand and reach so many countries.

    Statistics kept by our Internet Provider utilizing Webalizer verify that people in over 112 countries have logged into The Daily Catholic this month alone. As of Saturday we were less than 2,500 hits from two million hits for the month. The total hits for 2004 by the end of March will be close to five and a half million. While that of course does not mean that many people for each person goes to several different pages, it does indicate that a lot of people are logging on, they are reading. But they have not responded in kind to help this ministry except for a few of our dear, beloved regular contributors whom without their help we would have had to close down. But now is the time to share your wealth. I call on you with humble and pleading heart to help.

    We have provided The Daily Catholic free to all as long as it has been on-line. Many have long taken it for granted without giving back something. If you have read anything that has moved you closer to Christ and His True Church, don't you think it only fair to acknowledge this as the Good Samaritan did?

    In these times which grow darker by the day, we know God wants us to keep The Daily Catholic going as a light in the darkness. There are other Traditional ministry that deserve your support as well, but is it not only right and proper to help those who provide you a daily dose of true Catholic spirituality, as well as how to deal with the world, the flesh and the devil, and warn you of the pitfalls both in the world and, so very sadly, in the Church today?

    We have put out a publication regularly since 1990. Albeit ten of those years were in the Novus Ordo and it was only through the grace of God in His time that the blinders from our eyes were removed and we saw what we needed to do for the benefit of our own salvation and for others. We forfeited many benefactors when we turned our back on Vatican II to forever embrace all the Church taught up to that. It has been a difficult process financially because of it. Yet when God closes one door, He opens another. Perhaps we have been to presumptious in assuming people would give by depending too much on the Holy Ghost to prompt you. The fact is we need to ask so that you realize our needs. In another article I will go into more detail on why now that is especially vital because of lost benefits from the state in my Medicaid and my health will not tolerate the climate here in Missouri. We tried. And, yes, we are going to have to move from here…despite the exceptional beauty of the area, and the peacefulness which has given us that atmosphere in which we have studied and learned so much more. But my health is not improving. In fact, it is going back the other way. Won’t you help both us and the Ministry? Our dear Lord says in Matthew 7: 7 and Luke 11: 9 "Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and you shall find; knock, and it shall be opened to you. For everyone who asks, receives; and he who seeks, finds; and to him who knocks, it shall be opened." We are asking you to knock on the Door of His Heart and to ask yourself if you are doing enough to help the Traditional movement, and especially here for these purposes The Daily Catholic, or could you do more, give more?

    There are countless souls out there who need to be converted. We need to be there for these souls when the Chastisements are visited in force upon us all and they have no where to turn. We want to be that light they can turn to. With your financial help, together we can enlighten and convert them through God's good grace and in His time. And with God all things are possible.

    Almsgiving today is tax-deductible. More importantly, it has always been considered by Holy Mother Church as a great virtue of charity and humility. Let us all put on sackcloth and ashes and live as mendicants so that you will better understand the difficulties Mike and I face each day in our ministry and our lives, and I know the Holy Ghost will lead you to help us. We cannot accept credit cards yet because there is a whole new process that needs to be gone through before a company can qualify for a merchant number. But there are checks, cash, and money orders. Just make them out to either: The Daily Catholic or SANCTUS. SANCTUS is the reorganized IRS-approved parent non-profit of The Daily Catholic.

    Please send your checks or, for foreign banks, money orders to

      The Daily Catholic
      46 Hummingbird Lane
      Kimberling City, MO 65686.

    Your love offerings and donations will go into a special fund earmarked for keeping the ministry going while we, once again, move back to a climate where my health will be with me longer so I may serve Him better and we will be closer to Our dear Lord at Daily Mass.

    Our Lord has not given us to know where we are to relocate yet for we need to be near the ocean for salt-water and a mild all-seasons climate are necessary for my fibromyalgia and lungs. If you know of an area that is both affordable and provides the Daily Latin Mass, please let us know. You can e-mail me by clicking on my name below.

    Whatever you give, God will give it back to you a hundred-fold and more. I think this has been proven quite evident in Mel Gibson's fiat to God with his masterful and marvelous 'The Passion of The Christ'. God does reward a sincere and generous heart.

    Believe this. Trust this. And then come and help us convert many souls for whom Christ suffered His Passion. And if still you hesitate, go and see 'The Passion of The Christ' and think over what more you can do for Him Who did all for us.

    Thank you for your prayers which we are always in need of, and I thank you in advance for being the most generous people, the most generous Traditional Catholics of any age in helping us.

    Your very little sister in Christ,
